    Hello,

    I am NEW to this forum and to Macs really. I have an ipod touch which I synced with my Sony PC and got all of my pics and some music. Well like every great PC out there, the hard drive took a dive for the worst and I lost everything. The only way to get those pics back is from my ipod touch.

    I am working on getting a MacBook, but right now have a PowerBook G4 with 10.3.9 on it and a fresh itunes.

    Any help on how I can recover those photos from my ipod touch would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Just as a note, I don't believe the touch stores the photos at full resolution, only at a resolution suitable for displaying on the screen and allowing a bit of zooming. If you want original resolution photos, you'll probably have use data-recovery software/service to get them off your old drive.

    Any song will be there in regular MP3 or ACC or pretty much whatever you had it encoded in, it is just a matter of getting them off, which unfortunately I am unsure of how to do, but am reasonably sure can be done with the amount of hacking going on.

    There's a $10 program for the Mac called iPhoneDrive that allows you to copy files both to and from your iPod touch/iPhone. It's useful.
